##### The Metrics Prefixes Chart

Re-create the metric units prefixes chart in the space below. Try to do so from memory before going back to the other handout.

##### How Many Blank in a Blank?

Figure out how many of the first unit there are in the second unit then write a unit equality. Also, identify the type of unit by writing length, mass or volume next to each answer.

1. How many m in a km?
2. How many ng in a mg?
3. How many μL in a L?
4. How many mm in a m?
1. How many pm in a μm?
2. How many fL in a pL?
3. How many mL in a ML?
4. How many Mg in a Gg?
